In this site you will find a generic R course (R in a Nutshell). Parts of this material are taught at Introduction to Bioinformatics class in the Biomedical Engineering Master at UPC.
R is a fantastic and powerful free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms, Windows and MacOS. You can freely obtain R at the R project website at http://www.r-project.org/.
About the Contents
The course has several parts, each part devoted to a particular matter, please find pdf links as follows:
- Introduction to the R environment
- Introduction to R syntax language
- Statistics and Linear Modelling
- Introduction to the Machine Learning Lab
- Annex and Bibliography
